We worked with a range of stakeholders, partners and end users that included Suffolk County Council and Tuddenham Primary School’s headteacher, teachers and governors.
We then delivered a total design and project management package that would initially accommodate 315 pupils, but allow for an extension to be added with more classrooms at a later date. The school was to be built within the principles of “passive sustainability”, with classrooms making use of natural light and ventilation to keep energy costs down and reduce the carbon footprint of the building. There was also a requirement to incorporate elements of community use as a local hub.
“The facilities provide generous accommodation on two floors which have been planned carefully to meet the needs of children in Key Stages 1 and 2. The school has been designed and orientated to make good use of natural light and ventilation providing a high quality teaching and learning environment.”
Frank Stockley, Senior Infrastructure Officer Children and Young People Services, Suffolk County Council
